Stroke & Vascular Disorders
An ischemic stroke results when cerebral blood flow to an area of the brain is interrupted. Nearly 90% of all strokes are ischemic. Ischemic strokes can be due to local vascular occlusion (thrombus), occlusion from intravascular material that originates elsewhere (embolism), or poor perfusion through a narrowed vessel (hypoperfusion or watershed infarction). Important stroke risk reduction strategies include antiplatelets, anticoagulants, arterial revascularization, blood pressure medications, cholesterol medications, cessation of smoking, diet modification, and exercise.
